Time for Revenge/Story

???

Hey. Darklord.
Not often I hear from you.

Veritas of the Dark

So you came. Flamelord.
You must know why I called you out here.

Veritas of the Flame

You want to see the sword?
I've got you covered, friend.

Veritas of the Dark

It is almost time. Soon...the stars will fall.

Veritas of the Dark

Everything should be prepared and ready, if we are to achieve our goals at last.

Veritas of the Flame

The people of this world live in peace, all soft and ignorant.
This might turn out to be one of the easiest things we've done.

Veritas of the Dark

Do not be foolish.
There are still many factors we cannot control for.

Veritas of the Flame

Yeah. I guess I know what you mean.

Veritas of the Flame

Don't worry, Darklord. No matter how many centuries might've passed, my skills at the forge haven't dulled a bit.


Veritas of the Dark

We already have our spy in place in Zoldaad, I presume?

Veritas of the Flame

Yeah. He's one repulsive specimen, but pretty much perfect as a pawn.

Veritas of the Flame

So...our next step should be a surprise attack on Grandshelt. They've got one of the strongest armies around.

Veritas of the Flame

Once we launch our attack, we'll start the monsters in every land running amok. We'll have this thing wrapped up before they know what hit them.

Veritas of the Dark

Grandshelt...

Veritas of the Flame

The stars will fall just when they've got their main air fleets out patrolling.
I guess we'll have to stay on guard.

Veritas of the Dark

Seven-hundred years... It is too long a time.
Now we will finally bring it all to an end...no.

Veritas of the Dark

Now we will finally begin...seizing our long-awaited dream.

Veritas of the Flame

I'll see you again when I'm done with that sword of yours.


Veritas of the Flame

So there was still some decent ore to be found in this land, huh?

Veritas of the Flame

This ought to be enough to take care of that sword.

Veritas of the Flame

But why do we always need to use those communication spells to talk about battle plans?
I never get what Darklord is thinking, but don't any of the rest of them care either?

Veritas of the Flame

I'd rather meet face to face and look 'em in the eyes. I don't want…that…to ever happen again.
What kind of warrior has a problem with hammering things out man to man?


Veritas of the Flame

All right. The last thing I need is...

Veritas of the Flame

Hm?
This presence...

Veritas of the Flame

Ah. That's right... I forgot that he was stationed somewhere around here.

Veritas of the Flame

So he must've noticed it was me. That would explain this murderous feeling.
Typical.

Veritas of the Flame

If he wants a fight, I'll be able to give him one!


[Unknown ID: 200011]

So, Earthlord...
Satisfied?

[Unknown ID: 200012]

...It seems I can only depend on my brethren to provide me with any challenge.

[Unknown ID: 200011]

So that's your excuse for attacking me outta the blue?
It's been how many hundreds of years since we even met? But you really don't change.

[Unknown ID: 200012]

And what about you? Hard to believe that you've fallen so far. An old smithy, is that all you are now?

[Unknown ID: 200011]

Hey, hey, hey. No need to be insulting.

[Unknown ID: 200012]

Just lamenting things that are dead and gone.
There are no warriors in this damn peace-ridden world that can satisfy me in a fight.

[Unknown ID: 200011]

Don't dismiss them all so easy.
There's potential among the humans.

[Unknown ID: 200011]

Like, you know...you might enjoy watching them struggle in hopeless desperation once they realize what it is we plan to do.

[Unknown ID: 200012]

...I guess that might not be too bad.



[Unknown ID: 200012]
Darklord left his sword to you at a time like this?
[Unknown ID: 200011]
Yeah. His sword needs my tender loving care to draw forth his fullest power, after all.

[Unknown ID: 200012]

That may be. But does that mean that you have to crawl around in the dirt gathering ore?

[Unknown ID: 200011]

There are things you won't notice if you're always way up on your high horse.

[Unknown ID: 200011]

If you're gonna call yourself Earthlord, maybe you ought to at least keep an eye on what's going on under your feet.

[Unknown ID: 200012]

I chose the armor that was best suited to my fighting style. That is all.

[Unknown ID: 200011]

Hah. You don't change.
Come on then. Show me the way through here.

[Unknown ID: 200011]

There're some good veins of ore here.
It'd be good to have someone around who knows the land.

[Unknown ID: 200012]

I guess I have little choice.
You owe me, though.


Veritas of the Earth

If you're a warrior, why bother with smithing?

Veritas of the Earth

You could just leave such work to the dwarves.

Veritas of the Flame

Have you ever considered what metals went into the making of that sword you swing around?

Veritas of the Flame

Have you ever thought whether the metals used in your sword are right for cutting down the enemy before you?

Veritas of the Flame

When you understand such things, then for the first time, you understand the proper way to use your blade. That's what I think.

Veritas of the Earth

Sounds like the kind of nonsense the mages prattle about to me.

Veritas of the Flame

Do you think Darklord would've left his sword in my hands if he didn't agree?

Veritas of the Earth

Darklord, huh?
It's true he doesn't put his trust in many.

Veritas of the Earth

Now that I think about it, I guess Darklord always did give his sword to you before any big battle.

Veritas of the Earth

Even during that war...
And now when the stars are about to fall on this land...

Veritas of the Earth

The old days...were better than now.
There were warriors back then who were worth the fight...

Veritas of the Flame

So we'll get our revenge, and bring those days back. Everything's gonna be just as good as it ever was.

Veritas of the Earth

...Yeah. That's what we're going to do.


Veritas of the Earth

(Watching him again like this...
It really does bring back memories from those days.)

Veritas of the Earth

Taking your sweet time at the forge again, huh?
The final battle is drawing near, but you don't seem too worried.

Veritas of the Flame

It wouldn't do to have a rusty sword splinter in the middle of a critical battle.

Veritas of the Earth

I think you've gone a bit beyond that.
Look at this, you've even gone and made new weapons!
If you've got time to waste on sharpening dull swords, why not work on sharpening your rusty skills?

Veritas of the Flame

Sharpening my swords is sharpening my skills.
They're the same thing for me.

Veritas of the Flame

You entrust your life to your sword.
Knowing how it was born, how it moves...
I use that knowledge to my advantage.

Veritas of the Earth

...I don't get it.
The greatest joy for any true warrior is the moment of battle.

Veritas of the Flame

It's fine for you to not get it.
Everyone choses their own path to walk.


Veritas of the Earth

(No matter how many centuries pass, that man does not change.)

Veritas of the Flame

Besides...it's important to me. Being trusted with a friend's blade like this.

Veritas of the Flame

Leaving your sword in another's hands is like leaving your life in his hands.

Veritas of the Flame

Nothing else proves your faith in another like giving them your weapons.

Veritas of the Earth

And that's why you take care of everbody's weapons? Darklord and the rest of them?

Veritas of the Flame

These weapons tie us all together. All these weapons forged in the same fire.

Veritas of the Flame

So what do you say?
Want me to check out your sword as well?

Veritas of the Earth

Not now.
I'll use what time we have to work on perfecting my own moves.

Veritas of the Earth

The final battle...
It's got to be at least a little fun.


Veritas of the Flame

Cripes, but the monsters in this place have gotten weak.

Veritas of the Earth

You're right.
They're no challenge at all.

Veritas of the Flame

Then again, any monsters who are worth the challenge, we normally just make fight on our side.

Veritas of the Flame

Hah! The world's a funny thing sometimes.

Veritas of the Earth

So...how was Darklord when you saw him?

Veritas of the Flame

Oh, you know.
He never really changes.

Veritas of the Flame

Which is why he's the one leading this whole plan...
But you know that already.

Veritas of the Earth

I do.
I guess I shouldn't have asked.

Veritas of the Flame

There's always been something between the two of you, huh?

Veritas of the Flame

Like that time when you went rushing into that enemy army like that...

Veritas of the Earth

Let's not talk about that.

Veritas of the Earth

You've gotten what you came here for, haven't you?
I think the tour is through.

Veritas of the Flame

And that pride of yours hasn't changed a bit either.

Veritas of the Flame

I guess that pride as a warrior is the one thing that's kept him going all these centuries...


Veritas of the Flame

All right.
I'll just use the furnace for the rest.

Veritas of the Flame

We've spent a century making these plans. They're flawless.
We're really gonna do it this time...

Veritas of the Flame

But...we've changed after all this time, too.

Veritas of the Flame

Darklord is the only one whose feelings haven't really changed.

Veritas of the Flame

He never wavers from what he sets out to do.
Maybe I should try to learn that, too?

Veritas of the Flame

No...I should just stop thinking about things that don't matter, that's all.

Veritas of the Flame

I'll sharpen this blade of mine, and wait for what must come.


Veritas of the Earth

Why'd you have to come and bring reinforcements!?
I'm more than enough for opponents like these!

Veritas of the Dark

You were nearly surrounded.

Veritas of the Earth

And so what if I was surrounded? I'd just cut my way through them all!

Veritas of the Earth

If you're not capable of even that much, then see how it's done!

Veritas of the Earth

That Flamelord...
Why'd he have to remind me of such nasty memories?


Veritas of the Earth

I hated him. He was always spouting on about those noble ideals of his....
But he was strong.

Veritas of the Earth

Not that it matters now.

Veritas of the Earth

I've got nothing left now...
I don't even have an enemy worth fighting.

Veritas of the Earth

What would a monster know!
Get out of here!


Veritas of the Earth

Monsters are no more than dumb brutes...
Such battles bring me nothing.

Veritas of the Earth

I've lost everything.
No, I didn't lose it all... It was stolen from me.

Veritas of the Earth

This seed of hatred...
I will use it to get my revenge.

Veritas of the Earth

That...may be all I have left now.

Veritas of the Earth

Even my most bitter enemies...are no longer around for me to fight.


Veritas of the Dark

(The sword should be finished soon, I suppose...)

Veritas of the Dark

(When was it that I first asked the Flamelord for his aid?
When we were still in our homeland?)

Veritas of the Flame

Darklord.
That sword of yours...has certainly seen better days, I'd say.

Veritas of the Flame

Give it here a moment.
I'll have it in prime condition in no time.

Veritas of the Dark

You expect me to hand over my sword to another?
I value this sword near my own life!

Veritas of the Flame

If you consider us to be true allies, then yeah, I'd think so.
And besides, understanding your sword will help me understand you, too.

Veritas of the Dark

And what will I gain from this?
Will this give us greater strength in battle?

Veritas of the Flame

Throwing yourself recklessly into battle is no way to get stronger.

Veritas of the Dark

Ah... I see. So that is how you view things...
Take it then. My sword.


Veritas of the Dark

(The meeting place...should be up ahead here.)


Veritas of the Dark

(The plan is set for the night the stars fall. Our home grows closer...)

Veritas of the Dark

(I will shatter the earth crystal with this hand of mine, and at last have my revenge.)

Veritas of the Dark

(This will be my final battle.)

Veritas of the Dark

(Yes...I will make it my final battle. Now at last is the time to put an end to 700 years of rage and sorrow.)


Veritas of the Flame

It's finished.

Veritas of the Dark

Well done.
Did you hold yourself back a bit this time?

Veritas of the Flame

I did. After all, a lot of these Grandshelt people you'll be fighting are knights.

Veritas of the Flame

After seeing how they fight, I can guess the kind of battle that'll turn out to be.

Veritas of the Flame

And so you know, I adjusted the angle on the blade to better cut through the mechanical armor these humans wear lately.

Veritas of the Dark

You're taking this rather seriously.

Veritas of the Flame

This'll be our last big bang, after all. I wouldn't want to hold back.

Veritas of the Dark

Well, I trust you to do your job properly.

Veritas of the Flame

And I trust you to do yours.

Veritas of the Flame

Come on. Come with me as far as the forest's edge, at least.


Veritas of the Dark

I will wait here until the time comes. You should get back into position.

Veritas of the Flame

You sure you want me to go so soon?

Veritas of the Dark

What is that supposed to mean?

Veritas of the Flame

That freshly sharpened blade there is just begging to be wielded in battle. I can hear that loud and clear.

Veritas of the Dark

Hmph...

Veritas of the Dark

So when all is said and done, this is the price I must pay for having my sword cared for, is that it?

Veritas of the Flame

Hey now.
I've got to be paid for my work, you know!


Veritas of the Flame

Pretty good.
You've mastered it again in no time.

Veritas of the Dark

It's a fine blade. Perfect for smashing those cursed crystals into pieces.

Veritas of the Flame

That's what I like to hear. Now then, I'll be heading back.

Veritas of the Dark

And now...it is time for the end to begin.


Veritas of the Dark

The time...has come.
Now at last we will get what we have so long wanted.

Veritas of the Dark

Foolish air fleet, flying the sky rather than knowing your place...

Veritas of the Dark

Let yourselves be distracted by the monsters before you, and fall back to the earth.


Veritas of the Dark

...What foolishness.

Veritas of the Dark

Does a lifetime spent accustomed to peace so quickly reduce man to such weakness?


Veritas of the Dark

It's gone.
The memory of the warrior who was sealed here has disappeared without a trace.

Veritas of the Dark

What a pointless struggle...

???

Who goes there!?
Step away from the crystal!

Veritas of the Dark

If ignorance is a sin,
then your sins are grievous indeed.

???

What's that supposed to mean!?

Veritas of the Dark

Seven long centuries of sin...
And now it is time you atoned.

???

Atone...?
What is this madness?

???

Lasswell! Watch out!

Veritas of the Dark

...And so it begins.
My hammer of vengeance shall crush this eternity of lies.
